Vyterra Renewables Inc. is Ensyn's wholly-owned Canadian subsidiary responsible for development of production in Canada.
The Nova Scotia Project
Vyterra's current focus is the development of the Nova Scotia Project, a 40 million litre/year (10 million gallon/year) low carbon fuel production facility being developed in central Nova Scotia.
The Nova Scotia project is co-located with Ledwidge Lumber, in Enfield, Nova Scotia, one of Nova Scotia's largest sawmills. Ledwidge is a strategic partner and primary feedstock provider for the project.
The project will produce low-carbon fuel oil, and will be supplied to local institutional and industrial clients for heating purposes. In addition, the site is strategically located in proximity to the Port of Halifax, allowing for shipment of biocrude to international customers.
Low carbon fuel production presents a significant economic opportunity for the Province of Nova Scotia. The project would provide sustainable rural employment in support of local Nova Scotian communities and families. By sourcing local feedstock, the project would create a reliable economic outlet for sawmill by-products and would enhance the overall competitiveness of the forestry sector.
